As much as I want a long-term relationship, I figure, the more people I meet, the better my chances of meeting someone who’s right for me…and vice versa!
I thrive on trying new things and going to new places. My first love is nature—being in nature and learning about nature. I like animals, but I especially like cats--especially the smart ones. Dogs are great companions for jogging.
I have a strong passion for giving and receiving ideas. I think of combinations most people don't. It happens slowly and unreliably, but if I find a place for them, it could pay off. I'm like an artist of technology rather than a scientist who only cares about one particular area of expertise. I'm like a microscope with an unending carousel of slides.
Although popular on some women's profiles, what I don't like about Myers Briggs Type Indicator is the forer effect like horoscopes with no neuroscientific basis. Still, it's interesting to learn ideas about personality. I'm INTP and supposedly ideally match with ENTJ (maybe ENFJ), and ESTJ. http://www.personalityrelationships.net/intp-relationships/
"The thinking aspects of the ENTJ personality will jive well with the “thinker’s” analytical and problem-solving skills."
"Someone who shows an interest in some of the “thinker’s” passions and understands/supports this personality’s need to occasionally drift into a creative and self-imagined world would be a suitable match. If you tend to be controlling or have a strong need to be surrounded by order then the INTP personality will likely not be a good match for you. On the other hand, if you find that you enjoy creativity and spontaneity then you will appreciate the INTP’s quirkiness and laid-back lifestyle."
"Where the executive-like personality has a judging trait – one that craves structure and responsibility – perceiving individuals prefer openness and flexibility. This flexible nature means that the exec’s need to be in the driver’s seat is most often satisfied, as the perceiving individual isn’t overly fussed about being in control."
"Another intuitive individual would best suit the ENFJ because they would have the shared ability to sense and provide for one another’s needs. This is very important for a selfless “giver” who will eagerly ignore his or her own wants. Perceiving individuals, with a flexible and adaptive lifestyle can help to loosen-up the structured lifestyle of the judging personality. This trait will also ensure that the ENFJs partner is open to on-the-fly or last-minute social plans."
"It is more likely that INTP personalities will leave a trail of breadcrumbs for a potential partner, allowing them to make the first move and committing to their partner as an act of reciprocation rather than bravado."
"INTPs' creative, vivid imagination make for a surprisingly enthusiastic, passionate, and romantic partner. While INTPs may prioritize their inner world too much, imagining interesting and exciting intimate situations that are never expressed to their partners, they also use this rich inner world to achieve as much as possible in intimacy – they rarely want for ideas.
Physically, intellectually and with a little effort emotionally, INTP relationships are rich and rewarding connections. Partners who share the Intuitive (N) trait are usually best, along with one or two opposite traits to create variety and balance, but so long as INTPs remember that they are with people who have their own, independent wants and needs, and so long as their partners remember the same of their INTPs, these are long-lasting and satisfying relationships."
